PART TIME and SUMMER JOBS WHILE YOU'RE STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL
- The College and Career Center can help with resumé building, tips for interviewing, and mock interviews, and as always: read the Friday Bulletin where we regularly post local job listings and job seeking workshops.
- Follow our instagram @ghscollegeandcareercentral for local jobs that come our way. Check Stories Archive "JOBS".
- Don't see what you are looking for? Email Ms.Kokes to brainstorm additional avenues.
Know your rights and responsibilities and never meet someone for an interview in a private residence or other secluded spots. Doing your homework on a future employer before your interview not only makes you more prepared, it keeps you safe.
